My Lenovo Tinkpad L540


Hey all,

For my Linux hobby I recently bought a 2016 Lenovo Thinkpad L540, of course cheap :-)

But I have the feeling that the Thinkpad is not running well.

I am now installing Arch Linux (this also happens with the mainstream Distros-Ubuntu, mint, kde-neon), and just after the boot sector I get an EDD error.

After two enters I will get through, but after some simple commands the installation will not find / dev / sda1. Which I have created. Strange

Just in case you did not find this.

Good luck.
